First edition, first printing. Publisher's original green cloth with titles to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated with 44 plates in black and white. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth and gilt bright and fresh. The contents, with a large presentation inscription from 'The Peter Scott Trust' to the second blank endpaper are otherwise clean throughout. Mild spotting to the closed text block edge. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has a couple of small chips to the spine. An attractive example.
With a preface by H. H. The Maharaja Jam Sahir of Nawanagar, one of cricket's greatest ever players, playing for Cambridge University, Sussex and England. A signed limited edition of this title was issued by Blackwood later the same year.
